Last month we held our Pride auction in which we made 6 exclusive Ambit dildos in various different pride colours. Every single penny that we raised from that auction was sent to the Albert Kennedy Trust to help support their work with vulnerable LGBT+ youth.
A total of £307 was raised by you amazing people, £307 pounds! We submitted the money to the Albert Kennedy Trust on 13th June at 10.46PM. That money will pay for 12 nights of safety in LGBT-friendly emergency accommodation for a young person in crisis and in our eyes that’s a huge thing!
All of us here at Godmeiche want to say thank you for making that possible. We want to thank you for bidding, thank you for sharing, thank you for doing your little bit to help this auction raise the money it did. We as a community have helped to better someone’s life who’s in need and that is something we are very proud of.
Speaking of thank you’s, we received an email from Claire at the Albert Kennedy Trust thanking us for the donation. We followed that up with a phone call were we discussed the auction with her and explained how it was our customers who had really raised the money. As a result of that Claire wanted to share a thank you directly with those people and this is what she sent us:
“We want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped to raise the fantastic amount of £307 by bidding on this auction, and to Godemiche for choosing to support our young people in this creative way.
Sadly for many LGBT young people there is no safe place to call home, and many have experienced rejection, abuse and violence. Like you, we believe this is unacceptable. The money you raised together can pay for 12 nights of safety for a LGBT young person facing homelessness.
We believe that no young person should have to choose between a safe home and being who they are. Thank you again to everyone who helped make this auction such a brilliant success, and we wish you all a very happy Pride month”
